“Friendly, honest and helpful. As purchasers we found David to be highly practical, honest and straightforward in his approach.”
“Next level agent! David went above and beyond as an agent in my eyes. He was always very helpful and polite at every open house, during the sale he was probably too good as we paid a lot more than we hoped to for our new home.”
"Transparent, Informed and a Good Communicator - I recently bought a property through David. The sale process was highly competitive but throughout David was always transparent, communicated well and frequently with me and was able to answer all my queries quickly and without fuss.”
“Professional, hardworking and personable - David is conscientious and hardworking and is easy to work with. He did an excellent job from start to finish always keeping me updated on the progress of the sale. I am very pleased to have achieved a successful outcome with his help. I would give David a perfect 10 and would be more than happy to recommend his services. Many thanks, David!”
“An agent with integrity - it was very important to us that the agent for the sale of our property was someone we could trust. This was a defining moment that would have significant effect on our financial security for the rest of our lives. We felt our property was safe in the hands of David Benjafield. He was professional, communicative, punctual and sincere at every part of the sale process. We went with him because we were assured of his integrity. Importantly, for us, he did not engage in the hyperbole that some agents cough up - instead he gave us informed and realistic advice consistently. He ran a competitive but fair sales process that netted us a wonderful result. We would recommend him without hesitation.”
“Excellent agent on a complex transaction. David Benjafield has excellent local knowledge of the lower North Shore market and was able to put together an option purchase deal that benefitted a line of neighbours in Naremburn. He worked to ensure the option holders access to properties was well managed and that the vendors were all kept well informed and to assist in facilitating arrangements to adjust to each Vendor's circumstances as the option was exercised. This was especially important for elderly clients' needing to relocate. Would not hesitate in recommending David as a hardworking, honest and knowledgeable agent.”
“A truly fabulous agent. It was an absolute pleasure working with David on the sale of our family home. He was incredibly responsive to all our requests/questions throughout the campaign and we were grateful to be able to rely heavily on his expertise and extensive market knowledge. He calmed our nerves and kept us informed every step of the way, also going above and beyond to secure advantageous press coverage for our property. We were thrilled with the result David achieved for us and could not recommend him more highly to anyone looking to sell in the current market.”
“Every step of the process, David has excelled himself. We had the support and information we needed at each step to make decisions. David has a thorough understanding of the market, suburb, process and law. He conducts himself with integrity and we felt very safe trusting his advice. The level of thought, planning and communication by David and team was exceptional through the whole process and we couldn't have been happier with the outcome. I wouldn't hesitate to work with David again or to recommend him to others.”
“Envisioning the enormous potential of my property, capturing the imagination of a buyer, liaising with me, five of my neighbours and the buyer (with all that entails) to bring a sale to fruition - put these skills together with patience and reliability - David is a true professional and gentleman.”
“David is no-nonsense get-the-job-done kind of guy, highly recommended. From the moment he met with us in our home, to the off-market sale one week later in which he delivered a brilliant result, David was attentive, driven and refreshingly straight up. His knowledge of the Lower North Shore market is unparalleled. Best of all he is a genuine guy and great to deal with. Thank you.”
"Very impressed with his attentive conduct and service. David doesn’t lead the client into spending excessively in marketing as well as in styling the property presentation. He is proactive in updating clients in every step of the marketing process. He will call to debrief the client on each prospect whenever there is interest being shown and always followed by an email report summary for client’s reference. He is open and transparent in his approach resulting in closing the deal to our satisfaction and effectively.”
“Friendly, honest and helpful. David was honest and transparent during the whole process with his no-nonsense attitude which made us very comfortable with dealing with him. He did not play any games and we appreciated that. Would recommend to friends and family.”
“Very happy with David and the Belle agency, I would recommend him to prospective residential sellers on the Lower North Shore.
“David was confident that the Belle data base of prospective buyers was superior to the competition and would deliver us a successful off-market sale for our townhouse in Crows Nest, Sydney. He definitely delivered on his confidence. We achieved a sale within a week of the first inspection and at a price that met our expectation.
“Most of all, David is straight shooter with timely and clear communication. In an uncertain market we found this particularly important and we’re glad we chose David as a result.”
“An outstanding operator who's extremely professional and trustworthy. David was the complete professional throughout the sale of our property and I knew I was in safe hands the entire time. We were new to the game having never sold a property before, but he guided us through the process perfectly. He was completely transparent and also provided high-level, professional advice that ensured we obtained the price we wanted for the property. Over the moon with the result.
“I can't recommend David highly enough and from what I've seen and heard, he's one of, if not the most trusted agent on the Lower North Shore. Will be using him again in the future for sure.”
“I found David to be professional, courteous and very easy to deal with. He was responsive and helped me close out the deal in under 2 hours. This was my first property purchase and he helped me through the process. The apartment I purchased doesn't allow signboards but David went out of his way to find a mock board so I could put a sold sticker on it - he made it exciting for me. I would definitely recommend David to anyone looking to purchase properties in the area.”
“I would highly recommend David to anybody looking for an agent with local market knowledge. We immediately felt comfortable with David. David was very personable, and we felt he really cared about our sale and kept us up to date with inspections and interest in our property. David made the process easy for us.”
“David is a professional real estate agent. He is very polite, very pleasant and very helpful.”
“David helped us with our sale to a developer. He helped find interested developers and then kept us updated throughout the process which took place over two years. He was professional and hardworking and ensured the sale got to completion.”
Ultimate Professional! As a Buyer's Agent who deals with many selling agents, David Benjafield is up where with the most personable, straightforward and knowledgeable agents I have dealt with. When my client needed one more inspection late on a Friday afternoon, David changed appointments to accommodate the request. David also spoke very openly and honestly about what we needed to do to secure the house before auction, including giving us valuable insights into the type of interest in the house. This enabled me to advise my buyer accordingly and gave her the confidence to make the necessary offer without any games being played. We secured the purchase that evening - needless to say, I have a very happy buyer, who found and purchased a home in less than one month. Thank you David and I am sure you have secured yourself a seller when my client decides to upgrade!
David went above and beyond to sell our house. We weren't the easiest clients as we didn't want to go to market and we wanted a premium price. In one week, David showed our house off-market and then got a buyer to make an offer in line with what we wanted. He worked tirelessly on our behalf and kept us updated throughout the process. He set realistic expectations, and even arranged for someone to paint a couple of the rooms prior in order to brighten them up and moved furniture around (with our permission of course) to maximise the way it presented.
While many agents just post an ad on Domain and Realestate.com.au and wait for buyers, we would highly recommend David for his professionalism, market knowledge, database of customers and especially for his positive attitude and work ethic.
“Fantastic! David listened, he was punctual and non-intimidating. I highly recommend David, he made the sale of my property a pleasure rather than an ordeal and got me the price we agreed on. Five stars!”
“Professional, polite and always a pleasure to work with. I met David whilst purchasing a property for a downsizing client. He was charming to both me and my client Jenny - giving her the time to really understand the property before fully committing. He did a great job for his vendor keeping all parties engaged and serviced.”
“Many thanks for an excellent selling experience. Many thanks, David, for an excellent experience selling my apartment. I was impressed with your professionalism, and your expertise was invaluable when styling and marketing the property. Your continuous advice about potential buyers, and the state of the real estate market generally, was really appreciated. A successful outcome, and many thanks for all your hard work.”
"Responsive and professional. David was easy to deal with, communicated well and had a good grasp of the local area. I found David very responsive which made a stressful process that little bit easier.”
"Wonderful agent, best in the business! From the time we first met David his honesty and professionalism shone through. We went in thinking our house was well prepared, but David and his team were able to take it to another level which blew us away and set us apart from other properties on the market. It was this preparation along with a great campaign that got us a fantastic result.
“The true colours of an agent show when it comes down to the crunch of negotiations. David always kept us in the loop, and when it came to a decision, he provided advice and guidance to help us reach a decision (as opposed to pressure which most agents trade on). We felt comfortable and confident the whole way along.
“We couldn't have had a better experience and will use him again for our next place.”
